9780553281026: The Tall Stranger: A Novel

Wagon trains heading west were forced to defend themselves against Indians, cope with injuries and illness, and struggle to find food. The group of easterners Rock Bannon was scouting for faced another problem. They were being deceived. When he warned them to remain on the Humboldt Trail, Sharon Crockett and the others refused to listen. Mort Harper, a stranger riding a beautiful black mare, had dazzled them with his charm and good looks. The southern route was the best way to go, Harper told them. But best for whom? Bannon wondered. That route led straight to the Salt Lake Desert. The conditions would be brutal. And if Harper wasn’t steering them toward those deadly alkali flats, where were they headed? And what would happen once they got there?

From the Publisher:

Rock Bannon rode a steel-dust stallion that was as stubborn and leather-tough as she was. Scouting for a wagon train full of high hopes, Rock saved the Eastern-bred settlers from a brutal Indian attack. But they paid him back with scorn when he advised against following a fast-talker neamed Morton Harper. Rock Bannon followed no man, so he left the settlers to their promised milk and honey--until they realized their mistake and had no one else to turn to. That's when Rock showed them what a real man was made of and, with a smoking rifle, fought to put down Harper's outlaw crew and to make peace in the virgin land that he called his home.
